Psalm 23:4 states that, "Even though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." Wherever we go, from our birth throughout our life and into the passage of death, the Lord is always and ever with us. When the time comes to bid this life farewell, we should find comfort in knowing that a loving God will be there with us to guide us to our new home.  

Today, we realize that God Almighty knows best, even when the decision that he makes, doesn’t always seem to be the best for us.  No matter how sad, we may feel, or how much we will miss her; there’s no better place for her spirit to be, than in God’s loving arms. None of us know the day, hour, minute or the second; but what we do know is how we feel and what our beloved one meant to us.

Sarah Lee Peacock entered into eternal peace on Friday, July 31, 2020, Southeast Georgia Health System. She was born on April 10, 1935 to the late Henrietta Washington and Cleveland Tyson in Jones, Georgia. She was educated in the McIntosh County School System.

Sarah was baptized at an early age at First African Baptist Church in Jones, Georgia. After moving to Brunswick, she worked at Lewis Crab Factory for many years and enjoyed going fishing with family and friends. Sarah was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was united in holy matrimony to the late Earnest Palmer Sr, and to this union two children were born. She later married the late Joseph Norris Peacock and together they had three sons and two daughters.

Sarah was preceded in death by two of her children, Norris Peacock and Earnest Palmer Jr.; two brothers, Richard Tyson and Willie Bacon; and three sisters, Catherine Kirksey, Ruthie Mae Harris, and Thelma Riley.  

She leaves to cherish her fond memories: her children, Cleveland Palmer, Gregory (Lillian) Peacock Sr., Tammy (Kelvin) Jones, Shirley Palmer, and Wallette Roberson; four siblings, Twilla (George) Williams, Katie Mitzell, Bernita (Rex) Buchanan and Cleveland (Theresa) Tyson all of Douglas, Georgia; fifteen grandchildren; twenty-eight great-grandchildren; four great-great grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and many sorrowing friends.

Sarah was a woman of great faith and wisdom. She had a heart of gold and was always giving to others.
